Hello and welcome back to Jacktendo Selects, the monthly Miketendo64 feature where I go into my Top 6 Switch games of the month that just ended, talk about the game I’d happily recommend and the one I’m looking forward to this January!
So to get things properly underway, having been played and reviewed, here is my list of the Top 6 games that made it onto my list this month both photo and written form:
9/10 – Mutant Mudds Collection
8/10 – Brawlout
8/10 – Aqua Moto Racing Utopia
8/10 – The Coma: Recut
I know some of my selections might be questionable, but let’s just talk about them for a second, SteamWorld Heist was incredible long before it was Ultimate Edition. Mutant Mudds Collection is 2 of the previous Mudds games and comes complete with a funky new, puzzle addition. Brawlout is the closest we got to a Smash game on Switch in 2017 and is really quite enjoyable, Aqua Moto Racing Utopia, was exactly the Personal Watercraft focused game I wanted it to be and Blossom Tales? How could I not include it? Its indie Zelda and it’s published by FDG Entertainment, so it was going to be on this list regardless. As for The Coma: Recut, I know it is most definitely the weirdest one to have on this list, but I really liked the story to it, the axe-wielding Ms. Song who wants to kill you and the dark world the game is named after, The Coma. It’s a fantastic horror game and it is certainly a game I would recommend to horror enthusiasts.
Enough about the 6 games I did pick though, let’s talk about one I didn’t, but would recommend to any and all willing to give it a try, so without delaying it any further, December’s Jacktendo Selects title is none other than Teslagrad! Teslagrad is a fantastic 2D side-scroller puzzle game by Rain Games and sure it dates back to 2013, but even if you have played it before on another platform, Teslagrad is that good of a game that it is actually worth double dipping on, or just experiencing it for the first time.
As for the game I am looking forward to for this month of January, as much as I would like to pick World to the West as it is out this month, I’ve actually been playing it since Christmas, so there’s no point picking a game that I’ve got already! The game I will pick however is Lost Sphear. I know it feels a tad like a cop out to go with a game by Square Enix, but how could I not pick it? The demo is great and the full game with its Western release, is bound to be even better, so yes, Lost Sphear is the game I am looking the most forward to and you should too!
